electronics assembly - fixed
brake system - fixed
steering system - fixed
wider chassis - fixed

probably comes with longer front shocks to allow more down travel/droop and better steering.

Based on the pics is it safe to assume the truck tail of the chassis isn't kicked up like the buggy?

Looks like new hinge plates throughout with more adjustability in the insert.

it should as far as i know. the prototype our guys tested definitely had a kink in the rear too.

And the final Version too
IŽll start building it at the weekend..so some first impressions and changes i noticed:
Steering is now the a215 Standart ( changed it some time ago on the A8t already)
Radio tray...Yeah..enough space for a big 3000mAh Lipo
Brakes..Ferodo is now standard
on the Rear on the chassis plate there are some aditional holes. 2 of them u see on the pic above..for aditional weights..sure..truggy iss so light..
and 2 more holes inline with the two holes for the chassis brace. You can mount the brace from e-buggy. Had serious probs with too much chassis flex on the A8T when racing on astroturf or high grip tracks like indoor at the Leipzig toy fair.
You still can mount the optional lower engine mount plates but friend made a nice quick change engine mount, so i must use the short plates.
shock tower are slightly different.
A-arms..same shape but different coulor( material?)
..will update this when i start build it

today i started to build it.
Center diff..due the bigger spur gear they choose the way to use a alu spacer under the middle differential. secured by an extra screw and nut.
A-Arm have the same shape as the old truggy but now they are about 5mm longer and the new grey material is much stiffer.
the whole truggy is noch about 1cm longer than the old one.
CHASSIS

rear axle was easy to build. the new hinpin inserts allow more choices than the old one.

in the Moment i have probs with the front. the CVD will bind if the arm are in very low or high position..as the cdv are some mm too long. maybe just a prob with the wrong setup with the inserts.
Arms UP
arms DOWN

another prob were the steering posts. on old chassis there were some millings where the fit in. at the new one there are no millings.

ok..just chatted with Mark Rumble from Nemo..the missing milling at the steering posts..the new chassis is 1mm thinner so if there would be millings like the old one the whole steering wouldnt fit

Its the same on the 215 buggy..its so that you can get n flat hex wrench ( aka hudy wrench) in there to hold it in place so you can tighten them or undo them properly without worrying about stripping out the screws - a propblen on most cars in this area since you have to threadlock these usuallt
